Reconstruction work has begun to improve cycle lanes on Queensbridge Road.
Raised cycle paths will run from Whiston Road to Hackney Road, and the intersection at Hackney Road will be fitted with low-level cycle signals and an early release facility for cycles.
The intersection with Kent Street, and both arms of Dunloe street will be closed to all vehicles except bicycles. The Dunloe Street intersection will also be fitted with a raised parallel pedestrian/cycle zebra crossing.
Pavements along both sides of the Queensbridge Road from Whiston Road to Hackney Road will also be refurbished.
The pavements will be planted with trees, part of the council's commitment to plant 5000 trees by 2022.
